STORYLINES

► Oral Roberts returns to the road Thursday to face off the defending Big 12 Champions and 4th-ranked Baylor Lady Bears. It will be the 10th all-time meeting between ORU and Baylor with the Lady Bears holding a 7-2 advantage in the series.

► The Golden Eagles are trying to snap a seven game losing streak - the longest since losing nine straight during the early portion of the 2013-14 season. 

► Tuesday's loss at the Mabee Center was just the ninth home loss under head coach Misti Cussen. The Golden Eagles are 32-9 during her tenure at home with a .780 winning percentage however, ORU is 12-45 on the road.

► Sophomore Kaylan Mayberry has led ORU in scoring in each of the last three games with season-highs of 17 and 18 points at Arkansas and Missouri State. Mayberry did see her streak of double digit points come to an end Tuesday when she finished with nine points.

► Two sophomores lead ORU in scoring as Faith Ihim and Bria Pitts both average 10.2 points per game. 

Maria Martianez leads the Golden Eagles in rebounding with 5.9 boards per game. She is just ahead of Ihim who is pulling in 5.7 rebounds per game. 

► A tough early season schedule has been placed in front of the Golden Eagles in preparation for The Summit League season. In 12 non-conference games for ORU the Golden Eagles have or will face eight teams that reached postseason play during the 2014-15 season. Four games against NCAA tournament teams and another four against teams that earned a bid in the WNIT do not include The Summit League's automatic qualifier, South Dakota State and WNIT participant, South Dakota, amongst postseason teams on the 2015-16 schedule.
